Bavarian Bakery owner Flo Saffer places a tray of pretzels

Palsson kids bake their day

The baking area of the Bavarian Bakery was a little more cramped and noisier than normal

The baking area of the Bavarian Bakery was a little more cramped and noisier than normal as students from Palsson Elementary School paid a visit to the local bakery on Thursday, April 10.

Mr. Dunn and his Grade 3 class were at the bakery

to learn about how bread and bakery goodies were made. The students listened politely as bakery owner Flo showed the kids everything from getting the dough ready for baking to putting it in the big ovens, but what really got their interest is when they were given a big piece of the dough to make their own goodies.

The kids took the dough and rolled it out into foot long dough sticks and then formed them into pretzels and then watched as Flo put them in the oven. The kids then went for a break and some fresh air, and when they returned they waited in anticipation as the finished products were removed from the oven.

The students all took a lot of pride in being able to identify their creation from all the pretzels on the baking sheet.

Mr. Dunn used the visit to explain to the kids the history of bread making through the years.

A good time was had by all, and the students got to leave with their own handmade creations in a goodie bag.
